Summer on the sea helping boost international tourism in sun soaked Mallorca

The gorgeous Spanish Island of Mallorca, a popular holiday destination for Brits and Europeans alike lured by the island’s charm, sophistication and diversity is currently gearing up for a jam packed summer on the sea.

As the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe, the annual Superyacht Cup has drawn in over 200 sailing superyachts to the occasion since it began back in 1996, gathering the world’s largest and most impressive privately owned superyachts to Palma every year to participate in the four day invitation only event.

Commencing on Wednesday 22nd June and designed to showcase the Balearic Islands as one of the best superyacht bases in the world as well as tourist destinations, this event which is also famous for its ‘apres sail’ dock parties, BBQ’s, and glamorous gala evening held at Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art, will not only see many boating enthusiasts preparing to set sail from the dazzling Mallorcan shore but an abundance of intrigued visitors flocking to the island.

For the more adventurous sailor, Mallorca will also be the launch pad and finishing point for the Global Ocean Race 20011-12 which will see entries from various nations battle it out on some of the planets toughest waters on the 25th September returning back in May 2012 helping attract thousands of sports fans from across the globe to the golden island.

International events of such magnitude help put Mallorca on a new global stage and while many sailing devotees are attracted to such events and the extras that go along with them, many more stay for Mallorca’s sun soaked climate, striking blue flag beaches and high class boutiques and restaurants.

Of course, the natural beauty and popular social programme of the island means that the demand for accommodation, in particular rental property increases, seeing homes close to marinas in particular become more desirable. The vast benefits of owning a home on the beautiful Balearic Island means that it can offer a great rental income throughout the year.

Ignacio Osle, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey de España, explains,

“Tourists as well as property investors desire a high quality of life and high quality property to match. They want to be somewhere where the sun always shines, where the beaches are pristine, where the infrastructure is of a high standard, where there’s an abundance of cultural and social events and where the facilities such as bars and restaurants are first class. Mallorca, although recognised as a growing hub for the rich and famous has plenty to offer in terms of affordable property and remains as popular today as it ever was.  It’s an investment goldmine with something for everyone.”
